|1||We offer gifts of bread and wine
To Thee, O God, most high;
Send down on them Thy Holy Ghost,
Descending from the sky.
|2||With humble mind and contrite heart,
We come before Thy face;
Let all Thy blessèd saints on high
Implore for us Thy grace.
|3||So shall the Holy Church on earth
With every grace be blest,
And so shall all the faithful dead
Obtain eternal rest.
|4||All glory to the Father be,
All glory to the Son,
All glory, Holy Ghost, to Thee,
While endless ages run. Amen.
|Deuteronomy||8:3||And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
